Someone I ran across on here was trashing the fitness industry for being so focused on physique and beauty.
It had me wondering if I should share my own personal story and progress as I have been. As hard as I try not to think about what others think of me, I still catch myself doing just that from time to time (more often than I like to admit). Then I asked myself why I'm doing this? At first I didn't want to because I was afraid of negative comments. Another part of me wanted to connect with other people doing the same thing, to relate, to progress together, and to be a source of encouragement for people who want to get started.
It's not about looks for me. That's just a bonus. For me it's about strength, inside and out. It feels good and I want other people to experience that same sense of satisfaction.
After reflecting I decided I would continue and let the negativity go somewhere else.
Tell me about one thing that you are currently stressing about.
I’m stressed because I left my damn laptop at the beach this past weekend and everything I need for work is on there!! So I have to drive to the beach just for that tomorrow! 👎🏼
You're not going to want to do it 🙋♀️
You're going to let every excuse get in your way 👎
You're going to fall down and get off track #lifehappens 🤷♀️
You're going to have shity days 🤬 and sometimes you may even miss a workout or two 🤨
Not everyone is going to support you 😥
And some people are even going to talk smack about you and your journey #ohwell 🙍♀️ and to top it all off,
You're going to want to quit😮!!! It's all part of the process but, as long as you remember that.... You're going to have tune out all the outside noise 🔇, Push through the resistance that surrounds you 👨👩🧓👴👱♀️👱♂️ and
Bust your MF'ing ass day in and day out for a few days in a row #itsnotaquickfix 🙌 You're going to be freaking amazed of what will happen to you #insideandout
This mental transformation doesn't happen overnight and the more you allow others to dictate your self worth 🙅♀️ by allowing what they say or think about you to determine how and what you do and feel ☹ than the longer you're going to be miserable on a daily basis🤦♀️
Let's stop allowing other people's opinions get in the way of us living our best life and let's make a fuc*ing change👏
I'm ready when you are and I'll be waiting for ya 🤗
